2018 MLB Draft Discussion

That’s fine. Google and read the right scouting report on all these guys and eventually you’ll find one saying the will be MLB All Stars. 

But your point was that future utility guy is a worthwhile outcome for a second pick.  Do you know anyone who would adopt that as a draft strategy?  If it were a beauty contest, that's the prize for Miss Congeniality.

Yeah, because those are never wrong.

No, but when the consensus is "this is a glove-first slap-hitter that didn't hit the ball with any authority in college" then I pay attention to that. If he suddenly develops into a doubles hitter, I'll be thrilled, and so will the Orioles. But nothing in his tape suggests that power surge is coming as he moves to the minors.

He hit 2 Home Runs at 28. Slugging percentage around .350 until he is 32.  Then one season he comes back all jacked up and hits 20 home runs at 34.  And you don't think he was on steroids?

So I guess the year Wade Boggs went from 8 homers to 24 and then back down to 5, he must have been juicing.  Or the year that Lou Gehrig went from 16 homers to 47, he must have been juicing.  

Wait, wait, wait...I know, I know.  The year Davey Johnson went from 5 homers to 43 homers, he HAD to have been on steroids.

It never amazes me how naive people are, lol.

Wow, is everyone that down on these picks? 

Sorta.  

Some feelings that they stretched on the 11th pick, but there are some things to like about him.  Most seem to be down on the 37th pick.

Generally? I would say there's somewhere between a "Well, I like the kid but I wouldn't have taken him there over some of the other guys" and a "This guy's going to wind up as a reliever lol the O's are a joke" sentiment on Rodriguez. It's nearly consensus on Grenier.

Is Mike Siana related to the wide receiver of the same name who played for the Colts in the late 70s?

Man, that statement is rich. The pot calling the kettle black. 

Have you ever left Essex? 

Just curious.

The Bay Area was steroids central (Balco). Why don’t you actually read up on what Canseco and others  said.

Do you know professional ballplayers? Talk with them and get back with me.

    • Not saying it isn't, but AAA will be the first year we assume he will be using the MLB ball if AAA in 2020 will still be using the same balls. I'm glad Wells continues to beat expectations at every level but being a soft tosser still concerns me and probably always will. Wonder how many innings they give him with the big league club next year in spring training before they option him out to minor league camp?
    • I don't think Preston is giving enough of an adjustment because of weather conditions.  MVP candidate Russell Wilson played worse, against a statistically worse pass defense.
    • I agree. But it's been interesting to me to meet Y fans who found him so annoying that they're glad to be rid of him. They usually cite the fact that he made so many pitching changes and slowed the game down so much it became boring to them.
    • Something similar happened to me and another O's fan visiting from Vegas at the first 2012 playoff game at Yankee Stadium (the one in which Flaherty and Manny hit homers, Adam misplayed Jeter's fly into a RBI-triple, and Ibanez hit the game-tying and -winning homers in the 9th and 12th innings off of Jim Johnson and Matusz after Miguel Gonzalez had pitched his typically Yankee-killer gem). Beer wasn't thrown on us (we were in the bleachers and those fans wd never waste their Bud Light mead)--just the empty blue plastic bottles. We needed a two-officer escort from the water fountain all the way down the ramps. They also mocked my race. The other fan was a young white man and had flown in to bet on the game, and lost. There was a nice Canadian woman behind us who said she was rooting for the Y's, but hated Yankee fans.... I have some some cool photos. Nonetheless, I loved that season and series.
    • This is what he had to say: Lamar Jackson struggled passing most of the game and it appears that the league has figured out how to take away some of his easy throws. He threw behind and low to a lot of receivers. As usual, he remains the team’s top offensive weapon with his legs. Jackson isn’t a complete quarterback yet, but he can make big plays from anywhere on the field. Grade: C+ ————————————————————————- Honestly he’s pretty accurate.
